Shattered Dreams

Well, it happened.  The thing we have been fearing for the past month (or a little longer).  The thing that I didn't want to speak about, but my husband couldn't stop talking about. The house we wanted, the house we put our home on the market for, the house we have been dreaming of, was sold out from underneath us.
 
But, even though my dreams of living in that house, with the adorable kitchen, and huge rooms have been shattered (and my heart is a little shattered too) I know that everything happens for a reason.
 
God's word says there is a season for everything under the sun.  God's word says that He knows the desires of our hearts--and He will give them to us.  God's word says that all things work together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.  I am choosing to put aside my hurt feelings. I am choosing to let go of the house that I became attached to, even though I said I wouldn't.  And I am choosing to walk in the promises of God. 
 
I know that He knows what is best for us.  I know that He is taking care of us.  I know that He has a plan for our lives.  And I am trusting in Him.

My Little Cheerleader

Cori had a ton of fun cheering at her first basketball game tonight. She even did some jumps! Oh what Fun!

This isn't the post that is supposed to be here

Today I was supposed to be posting about the wonderful birthday party we had for Cori's third birthday. I was supposed to be posting amazing pictures of her very adorable fairy party. The party I have been working on for months--months of ideas, months of planning, and months of gathering items for the party. And it will have to wait for two more weeks.

Cori's party got cancelled because of a fever virus! She got a fever the Friday before her birthday party! What are the chances of that???? Poor little baby. Thankfully she didn't really realize what was happening when we had to postpone her party, otherwise I think she would have been really upset.

She did get to open her present from Aunt Brooke. She got just what she asked for...a wedding dress complete with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. She has been wearing the dress all weekend. That definitely eased the disappointment for her...but not so much for me.
